God reminded me why


Mustard Seed Budget

coaching soccerIt had been a frustrating day — criticisms of my efforts to get people saved and discipled. (It seems like the church is full of people who don’t save or disciple others, but they are experts to let others know what they’re doing wrong.)

As I prayed, God reminded me that I’m not working for the critics. I’m working for the kids.

I teach at the Lighthouse Christian Academy in Santa Monica and I coach for the middle school soccer team. We took some bruising losses this week, but I love the kids, and they seem to appreciate me. We have fun — all in Jesus’ name.

These are the powerful Saints! We have won only one game. But their enthusiasm, their joy, their love of Jesus, their positive energy makes them powerful in my book (quite a few players missed practice this day)!

One thought on “God reminded me why

  1. What I wrote in the original post: “I’m always amazed at how many evangelistic consultants there are out there with no resumes and offer their expertise PRO BONO. Sometimes these armchair quarterbacks don’t have time to do the actual work themselves or pray for those who do the work. Let God be the judge of our efforts and may we all be faithful to the Lord! Keep doing what you are doing brother!”
